Published Reviews

"It is amazing that a work written about Minnesota nearly 100 years ago could continue to be so cleverly exacting today...so skillfully executed it brings the entire house to fits of laughter."

Michelle Horton, The Minnesota Daily

"A fascinating, complicated study of the American dream... It's a smart, subtle play that invites a world of different reactions and interpretations... Here's a show that will make you care about its characters, and may well stay on your mind long after the trip home."

Caroline Petrie, St. Paul Pioneer Press

"Wright carefully balances the real tensions of Carol and Will's relationship with sharp-eyed satire of small-town mores."

Minneapolis Star Tribune
